@lfc

I usually shoot for that 6.5 mark, give or take a point. You should be fine with 6.2 but, I wouldn't go any lower. Running a few points higher will give you a bit of buffer space in case there are any weird pH swings for whatever reason tho, so might be a good idea.

This chart is from Jorge Cervantes' Cannabis Encyclopedia on page 340.

how are you meassuring your pH? pH Pen? if so, how old is it? do you keep it calibrated?

I have a BlueLab pH Pen for 3 years and I have to calibrate it every 2 weeks. BlueLab says once a month. And even then it deviates by 0,1 - 0,2 points.

So make sure you have a good instrument, otherwise you are just guessing.

am using a ph pen mate it’s brand new it’s not the pen. I have been using the ph measurements of hydro instead off soil  ( 5.8 - 6.2 ) it should be 6.5  Mrk  as our friend temple grower explained , thanks mate for the help ✌🏽
